Recipe Spotlight

Now that all my kids are grown and most are married, they often still come home for Sunday Dinner and their most requested meal is my Baked Shepherd's Casserole. They love the meat, potatoes and gravy combined. It's definitely our family comfort go-to food. When you get several people in the kitchen chopping, slicing and preparing, it comes together super fast and, at the same time, you get to catch up on all the family happenings. —Beverly Matthews, Pasco, Washington
